I briefly tried to use a computer like this at MIT around 1965. I only had 30 minutes scheduled. I mistook an o(oh) for a 0(zero) in the login instructions and never got passed that point.
PDP-10 Computer
When I joined Digital in 1976, this is the type of computer that I used. At one point, I had a DECWriter terminal at home like the one pictured in the video. I think the terminal that I had was an LA100 model.

Podunk

When I moved to Sturbridge, Massachusetts in 2006, I thought I had found the real Podunk. This map shows Podunk Pike (Route 49) and Podunk Road. I cannot find the Worcester Telegram & Gazette article that told about Podunk. However, here is an article that quotes from that article in the Worcester Telegraph. I had thought it was a recent article, but it may have been printed in 1941.

Now I find a web site that claims that they are near the real Podunk. Here is a map that shows their Podunk.

Of course you can always go to WikiPedia to find the whole story about Podunk. This is what led me to the article that I mentioned above.
